You Just Talk


The first day of the V7N blogging challenge will soon be coming to a close. I am sitting here relaxed and drinking the absolute best coffee in the word. Do you know why I am relaxed and smiling, even though I did not even begin my 1st post of the challenge until just a few moments ago? It’s simple.

I do not allow the act of blogging to stress me out. It is supposed to be fun, ya know?

If you can communicate, you can blog.

Imagine sitting across the table from your very best friend, just sharing some quality time over a cup of coffee. Think about how excited you sound when you talk about your business, a new product, or even a new idea you have. You don’t sit there and think about how you are going to say things, right?

You just talk…

That is how I see blogging, just sitting and chatting with an old friend over coffee.

Don’t over complicate it all.

Just have fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s a great reminder, and one I need to keep in the forefront of my brain each time I sit down to write. Thanks for this challenge, and this post.

    Sure Cricket, and all that coffee, chocolate, and nuts don’t hurt either ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still working on mine, it’s about email marketing. It’ll be a long read, but it covers just about everything I could think about helping people do it successfully. I’m not stressed, only in that I’m trying to get it done, and it’s not going quick enough ๐Ÿ™‚ I need to learn to type faster, I guess 65+ wpm just isn’t quite enough ๐Ÿ™‚ See you on the forums.

    Not stressed out about the blogging challenge, just spent an hour or so penciling in topics for each day (literally using a pencil) and have an eraser handy to rearrange things. (smiles)

    Thanks for the challenge and this post, again, Cricket. It’s probably unfair…though to whom, I couldn’t tell you…that I’m writing about writing. That said, it’s really interesting to me. I found in my earlier writing attempt at NaNoWriMo a few years ago that creative writing isn’t anything like what I thought it would be, and the current project also surprises me on a regular basis. This blogging challenge is perfectly timed to coerce me to write on my novel for a while, and then write about what the writing was about, which is really something rather missing from the area of writing education.

    It makes so much sense. I need to imbed this in my brain. Blog = Conversation with a Friend. Thanks for the tip.

    For personal blog , maybe can do like what you said , just like talk with friend and have some coffee.
    But for some blog need to be professional and serious because your blog is talking something that is serious issues .
    Sometime it is fun to play different role to write a blog so that your blog writing style maybe more interesting.

    Beautifully said. When you say something naturally and instead by sitting around and stressing about what to write that will impress people, the result is bound to be splendid.
